I couldn't agree more. I have a Youxin IIIc that I bought on Ebay for
abount $300. It was painted and CLAed. What a bargain! It currently has a
28 Summaron and black metal finder parked on it. It has brassed a little
and looks wonderful. Putting these beat-up and broken cameras back into use
is a terrific service to the Leica user's community.
